A full survey includes an inspection while the vessel is in the water, while it is out of the water, and a sea-trial. At the conclusion you will receive a report including findings, recommendations, photos and an appraisal of the vessels worth. We look at your vessel from every angle and thoroughly inspect to find any discrepancies. After percussion testing the entire hull looking for de-lamination we check every component on your vessel including fuel lines, raw water hoses, through hull fittings, stringers, blisters, bellows, etc etc. We travel anywhere within Texas and will go further on a case by case basis.
The purpose of a survey is to determine the condition of a vessel's structure and equipment, and to approximate its value. Most surveys are done for a specific purpose, such as insurance, financing, pre purchase, or are needed as a result of a loss from damage, theft, or accident. As a potential buyer or owner the survey can assist you in determining whether the vessel is in a safe and seaworthy condition. Oftentimes survey's are required for insurance purposes every four or five years.
As a SAMS member and operating associate surveyor we are qualified for all your insurance and finance needs.
A partial survey would be based on the customers needs for a lesser fee. Consulting services available on a per hourly basis.
